The Sentinel Kinetic Cooker Hood is designed to fit in a 600mm wide aperture above a hob. The hood contains an integral fire damper in accordance with BRE Digest 398 and is connected to the heat recovery unit by a galvanized steel duct with access for cleaning.
When the hood is opened, the heat recovery unit goes to boost speed and the summer bypass
automatically opens to prevent cooking by-products entering the heat recovery cell.
As an additional safety feature, the duct also contains a thermal cut-out fuse which turns off
the MVHR unit in the event of excessive temperature in the airway.
Cooker Hood units cannot be handed on-site and must be purchased as left hand (L) or right
hand (R) models.
The integral humidity (models with H suffix) sensor increases speed in proportion to relative
humidity levels, saving energy and reducing noise.
The sensor also reacts to small but rapid increases in humidity, even if the normal trigger
threshold is not reached. This unique feature ensures adequate ventilation, even for the
smallest wet room. The night time relative humidity setback feature suppresses nuisance
tripping as humidity gradually increases with falling temperature.
